Hey there! I’m off to a pumpkin-carving party (it’s B.Y.O.P.), so I’ve gotta make this quick, but here’s what I’m wearing:
Festive but hopefully not over-the-top!
Those of you who follow me on Twitter got a little sneak peek at this yesterday. A while back, I was browsing ModCloth, like ya do, lusting after many a lovely frock (also like ya do), when I came across the Avocado Orchard Dress. I got weak in the knees at the mere sight of it! The cut! That belt! Those colors! But it was OUT OF STOCK! So I signed up for their handy “Alert me when this is back in stock” feature, figured it would never be back in stock, and promptly forgot about it. Then I got an email with the following subject line:
Avocado Orchard Dress – Hurry, it’s back in stock!
Oh. Ooh. HURRY I DID!
Don’t you love it? :)
Totally simple yet still chic & put-together look today:
Then again, I think pencil skirts almost always achieve that feel.
Everyone have a good weekend? I did, despite spending 8 hours total on a bus – all to and from Iowa for a barbecue and joint birthday-graduation party with friends old and new. And to wear?
I went with this fun cotton tank dress from Mossimo (size M), brown leggings from No Boundaries, and teal flats from Urban Outfitters. The shoes don’t entirely go, I know, but after those Michael Kors heels on Friday – and with hours of travel in my future – I was all about comfort, plain and simple.
Does anyone else miss those childhood days when Easter meant getting a brand new dress with some kind of ruffle or lace and undoubtedly flowers on it? And maybe even an Easter hat and gloves? I do!
These days my family is pretty casual for Easter, as we are for most holidays. Generally we gather at someone’s house for a very chill, low-key celebration of whatever holiday or month of birthdays it happens to be. This year we had so few people that we all fit at one table, which is very out of character for us, but it was, of course, still fun and full of good food & good laughs.
Accordingly, I kept my clothing casual:
Yellow shirt dress: Mossimo (size M), white leggings: No Boundaries (maybe not my favorite with this look, but it was just a bit too chilly for bare legs), purple leather belt: Gap, teal flats: Urban Outfitters.
Well, wouldn’t you know, it’s another cotton dress!
I know, I know: How many cotton, empire-waist dresses does this girl own? But see, the thing is, when something works for you and is figure-flattering, in addition to being comfortable (and super affordable), I don’t think it’s terrible to own a bunch of different twists on the concept, do you?
I’ve been wearing a lot of orange lately, eh?
Once again, this is a look that started out as one thing and morphed into something completely different. And I rather love it. It’s bright and fun and flirty with the colors and print. I wore it up to Evanston today to visit my friend Katy, who treated me to a delicious mocha. Mmm! The only thing better than seeing a friend’s smiling face is catching up over a cuppa joe:
I <3 Katy!
